All our clients understandably would like certainly as to how long it will take and yet that is the one thing that no conveyancer can give. The average transaction time according to the government has lengthened (due to more vigorous requirements for anti-fraud investigations, money laundering checks and other things such as changes to mortgage regulation etc.) with 12-16 weeks now being the average.
